Tribenet.com is featuring the article below about an octopus wrestling event held in July 1963 off Seattle's Puget Sound. Barbara Baggaley, one of the competitors, is clearly a kindred spirit amongst TONMO'ers. In her words, "They're really my favorite animal... They're extremely intelligent. They just fascinate me."

Our longtime friend Dr. Roland Anderson (of the Seattle Aquarium) is quoted in the story as well. Enjoy the article below:
